Constant flaring problem.

So, my betta has developed an intense rivalry with...something in the corner of the tank. I assume he must be seeing his reflection. He has been flaring non-stop for the past five minutes. In this time, I've tried putting dark paper behind the tank, light paper, turning off the lights in the tank,turning of the lights in the room, directing more light at the tank, and turning of the filter. He won't stop, though. I'm worried he's going to exhaust himself. Any ideas?

Try turning the tank lights off again. When the tank lights are on but the room is dark, it casts a reflection in the glass.

Ah, I figured out what it was! He was seeing himself in the filter box. I covered it in white paper and he is now resting under his little arch.
